“Democrats need a unifying strong message about how they’re going to get Americans back to work,” MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough commented on Tuesday.
The Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough on Tuesday bashed the Democratic Party for not having a message during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
Robinson was discussing his recent opinion piece titled, “This country deserves much better than Trump,” in which Robinson writes:
“The Democratic Party needs a plan, a message and a sense of urgency.”
Scarborough agreed with Robinson’s assessment and commented that the Democratic Party, “can organize all the marches you want to organize, you can hold all the rallies you want to have, you can talk about Russia all day and night, if you’re a Democrat. That’s not going to move voters. The Democrats need a unifying, strong message about how they’re going to get Americans back to work.”
“Even when we have Democrats here on this show and say, ‘Hey, we have a new message about how to get Americans back to work’…I haven’t heard anything that’s going to unite voters together and make independents, and some moderate Republicans go, ‘Wait a second, I think I want to follow the Democratic Party,'” Scarborough continued.
Robinson agreed with Scarborough’s assessment, saying that he also hasn’t heard a unifying message coming from the Democratic Party.
“There has to be a message, there has to be a reason for people to rally to the Democratic side, and it can’t be just that…Donald Trump is awful,” Robinson concluded. “[Democrat’s] need a positive message, and it has to be simple, and it has to be brief, and it has to connect with people, and frankly we have not heard that yet from the Democratic Party.”
“Anger is not a unifier, not even close,” MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski interjected.
